The American Accent

The American accent has been heavily influenced by many other accents: namely, the Irish accent, the Spanish accent, the Italian accent, and, of course, the British English accent, due to America’s history of immigration.

 

 

THE IRISH came from the four corners of Ireland, they came in their droves and settled firstly along the east coast of America. ‘They made their home’ in the big cities of New York, Boston and many more!

 

They brought with them, their IRISH ACCENT:

The Irish Accent

 

 

THE ITALIANS came with their style and their flair, and their “culinary talents in the kitchen” and brought their character and names to the bright lights of New York, along with other cities.

 

They brought with them, their ITALIAN ACCENT:

The Italian Accent

 

 

THE SPANISH came up from the south, from South America!

 

They brought with them, their SPANISH ACCENT:

And, as for THE BRITISH, well, ….. as we know, …..

Without doubt, there were other accents that played a part in shaping the American accent. But these four accents stand out as being particularly important: the Irish accent, the Spanish accent, the Italian accent, and, of course, the British English accent.
